Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s top adviser and campaign manager for his victorious run, is making no secret of her feelings towards Mitt Romney.

“It’s just breathtaking in scope and intensity the type of messages I’ve received from all over the country … the number of people who feel betrayed to think that Gov. Romney would get the most prominent Cabinet post after he went so far out of his way to hurt Donald Trump,” Conway said in an interview Sunday.

This isn’t the first time Conway has made a public appeal against choosing Romney, previously remarking, “They feel betrayed to think that you can get Romney back in there after everything he did — we don’t even know if he voted for Donald Trump. He and his consultants were nothing but awful to Donald Trump for a year.”

Romney and Trump referred to each other using somewhat colorful language during the campaign. Trump called Romney a “loser” and a “choke artist” in response to Romney labeling him a “phony” and “very, very not smart” on foreign policy.

Indeed, the foreign policy consequences of Trump picking Romney are raising a few eyebrows, since Trump is normally thought to be less antagonistic towards Russia than Romney, who has called Russia the “top geopolitical foe” of the U.S.

The other top contender for the job of secretary of state presently is former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani, who is a prominent and loyal Trump supporter.
